Tofu note: Marinating the tofu is optional. If you want to speed the cooking process you can eliminate this step. Marinating will add extra flavor to the tofu, but you can skip the step if you are in a hurry.
Vegetables Switch-Ups: If you’d like to use other veggies in this stir-fry, go for it! I love to add in carrots, green beans, snow peas, and zucchini. Keep in mind that harder veggies like carrots and cauliflower need a little more time, so add those earlier in the cooking process. Veg like zukes, bell peppers, green beans, and especially snow peas need just a few minutes to gently heat through and not overcook.
Sauce Note: Sometimes I like to ‘extend’ the sauce a little more, using about 1/3 – 1/2 cup of water. When I do, I round the tbsp of arrowroot slightly so that the sauce will still nicely thicken. Don’t add too much water as it will dilute the flavors.
